2018 Lotus Elise Cup 260

The lightest and most aerodynamically aggressive Elise Cup ever, the 260 has a curb weight of a mere 1989 lbs, while generating 397 lbs of downforce at its top speed of 151 mph.

Power comes from a supercharged alloy 1.8 liter inline-4 with dual VVT and charge cooler. Output is 250 hp @ 7200 rpm and 188 lb-ft at 4000-6500 rpm.

Aerodynamic features include a carbon fiber front splitter, front access panel, roll hoop cover, engine cover, and rear wing. Louvered wheel arch vents reduce lift at speed. The Elise Cupe 260 has a laurel wreath decal on the outside of the left flying buttress, as well as a Union Jack on each of the rear wing end plates.

Air conditioning and sound insulation are available as options.
